riding oververt ramps

this is a small, cramped oververt halfpipe in the same town where i built the dirtjump in the other post.

this thing is oververt by a few degrees, and when i ride the thing it kicks me out away from the transision. any suggestions or help on riding these things? the highest i have aired the thing is about 1 foot off the top of the extension and i landed flat.

i added a pic of a small air where it kicked me out so you can see what i mean.

I don't see any oververt on that, either. Just don't pull back when you air it.

lots of riders who are much more experienced than me say the same as me man. the thing is definately over vert, the pics are misleading.

edit: that is, the pics don't show the ramp properly. they were taken from a weird angle.
